I have 4 ducks just a little over 4 weeks old. They are all starting to get a green sheen at the top of their heads. Does that mean that they are all male? I was so hoping for a couple females but am staring to think they’re males! Any advice would be great. I’ll attach a picture of what the ducks look like.

Do any of them ever quack?

Females Rounen's will have a slight green sheen on the top of the head too, it is only when it starts covering parts of their face you can consider them a male. Voice sexing is a much definite and easier route to take though.
Well that makes me have a little hope that some are females. They are starting to really make different noises. One sounds like it’s honking and another is kind of raspy sounding.
